there. >> well, the reason for that, tamron, is the internal polls for the obama campaign and romney campaign are very different. the obama campaign thinks it's up in most of the swing states, but the romney polls show a different story. the public polls show that president obama sleis leading m romney by a decent-sized margin in pennsylvania. >> thank you very much, chris and erin. i know it's a tough conversation. your attention is focused on all the people greatly affected by the storm and also on politics. it's important. search and rescue operations are in progress in atlantic city, new jersey with new video coming in plus the floodwaters still inundating atlantic city. dozens were trapped by floodwaters in their homes and emergency shelters after in some cases ignoring mandatory evacuation orders to move inland. in the meantime the city's mayor fought back against criticism about governor christie he allowed people to shelter in the city. the atlantic city mayor joins us by phone. thank you for your time. >> you're welcome. good afternoon. >> before i get into this, give me an

a brand new cnn poll shows president obama with a 3-point lead over mitt romney, but it is the all-important 50% marker, so it's 50%/47%. good for obama. in new hampshire a new poll from new england college finds president obama with a 6-point lead. that's solid. 50%/44%. in wisconsin a new poll from st. norbert college has the president up 9, 52%/43%. that's a surprise. here is a poll from that hot senate race in indiana. i love this one. joe donnelly of notre dame has an 11-point lead over richard mourdock with the libertarian candidate at 6%. speaking for the democrats, of course. we'll be right back. ♪ so you went right back to the pathfinder's essence, kept its dna, and created the next-gen s.u.v. starting with a drivetrain that gives best-in-class fuel economy of 26 miles per gallon, highway... ♪ ...and intuitive 4-wheel drive? ♪ if inside it had best-in-class front, head, and leg room and interior roominess? and outside, best-in-class standard towing of 5,000 pounds? ♪ [ whistles ] [ all scream, laugh ] [ male announcer ] yeah, that would be cool. introducing the all

's interesting. let's talk about these state poll polls. we have new information that show obama with the lead in wisconsin, new hampshire and iowa. he has a five-point lead in ohio. you've been talking to team obama, his top officials. what do they make of these numbers? >> i was in chicago two days ago and they are supernaturally confident. >> supernaturally confident? >> yes. that's a normal place for the obama campaign, never anything other than supernaturally confident. >> overconfident? >> we'll find out. the way i would describe the obama campaign, they know their voter contacts, and if they know what they know they're going to win. if everything they know is wrong they're going to lose. and jim aceda, when i said that to him, said i was right. the romney campaign looks at these numbers and the statewide polls and the trend is still in romney's favor, closing the gender gap with women, has greater gop enthusiasm. obama campaign looks at the top line numbers and says we're going to win. romney campaign says no, uppedlying data points we find optimistic and maybe give us a path to victory
with the picture voters, and they're still backing president obama. if you look at the polls, on average, the president is winning. he has maintained a small but steady lead. i think this year you will see a number similar to what we had in 2004 and not so much in 2008. that was a different year. a lot of people were so upset with george bush. the president will pull out and win next tuesday. i think the numbers will be closer to what they were in 2004. host: what is your handicap for the governor's race and the two contested congressional races in the state? guest: in the governor's race, the democratic canada has maintained a small but said to lead in the polls. she has been out there campaigning and really doing a good job getting the message out. the republican, a very well- known figure in the state. this is the fourth time he is run for major office. he has not been successful in the past, despite the fact that he had much greater name recognition. he just has not been able to catch her in the polls. the polls go back and forth on each of those. it is a rematch of the congressional
at the polls it's been ve steady t point advantage. >> uh-huh. >> in the state for obama. and one of the oddities of the race so far is that the national numbers probably a slight romney favorite right now, the state numbers like ohio, and obama favored. and i don't know too many experienced political hands who expect that to continue, that you get at this junction between the national numbers and some of these swing state numbers. usually they come together. it's possible that if say romney gets a plurality or a majority of 50.6, it's possible to see him losin the electoral college. if he's up over 51 or 52, it's hard to reconcile a two or three point win with an electoral loss. numbers have got to be pretty close. >> because the two are more likely to go in tandem is what you are saying. >> yeah, it's a crazy system. and david and i can have that debate. the electoral college is -- >> we can talk about that next. >> yes, in the off season. but let's understand this. there is a republican advantage in ohio. ohio is more republican than the nation. and internally, this one democra
much smaller gains. mr. obama has consist enly lead in the polls here and still holds an average of a 2 to 3 point lead. with the resurgence of the auto industry, new stealle production and the promise of large natural gas reserves, you can sense the optimism here in northeast ohio. but a big question w is whether demoatic strongholds like youngstown will give mr. obama enough margin to carryde the state and stay in the white house. mr. obama's popularity here is maintained by strong support frome autoworkers like union president green. >> in march everything almost came to a halt, right. the contractors we had in the plant were backing off. there were helicopters flying over our plant taking inventory, people waing through our plint with clipboards taking inventory. they were going tot liquidate our facility. that's a fact.ou so mitt romney can air brush this all i wants. that's what was happening at the time. the fact that president obama stood up and said i'm going take a bet on the american workers and we're going to invest in this when it wasn't a popular thing to do, absolutely h
poll found americans rate president obama's response to the superstorm, positively. 78% say mr. obama's handling the situation excellent or good. the president toured new jersey with republican governor kristi. the governor usually one of the -- president's harshest critics had nothing but kind words. >> he was worked incredibly close me i cannot thank the president enough. -- >> reporter: both campaigns think they are winning. obama campaign points to the president leading or tied with romney. romney campaign says the president is playing defense in michigan, pennsylvania and minnesota, democratic turf. tahman bradley, abc news, washington. >> the number of californians who can vote is at an all-time high. almost a million and a half new voters signed up online under the state's new law they tend to be younger and less leaning than the state's general voting population. >>> wet trip into work this morning. >>> sometimes rainex if conditions are correct, definitely going to be a tough commute this morning. looking at the golden gate bridge you can see the steadier rain over. definitel
easier. polls show barack obama consistently ahead in iowa and wisconsin. if he holds on there, he won both last time, he just needs to win florida, ohio or virginia. he's behind in florida and a dead heat in virginia. he seems to be ahead in ohio. it's why the candidates are spending so much time in that state. obama has a 73.6% chance of winning. it's hard to imagine a romney victory without winning ohio. okay. everybody is in ohio. it's such a bizarre undertaking to go through the map and everyone now has these nice interactive things. is that your sense of the race? my sense of the race is that it's very hard to see it not coming down to ohio if we are sitting down on election night figuring out what the call is going to be made, it looks like ohio is going to determine it. you have been around the country. i'm just curious, what sort of the mood has been in different swing districts that you have been in? you are active in all parts of the country. >> we have been active in a number of battleground states. i have most recently been to ohio and new hampshire. the mood is different
's renewed campaign come as the latest polls show president obama lead big six points in eye but locked in a tight balle with romney in new hampshire and wisconsin. nearly all interviews conducted before hurricane sandy, which just might end up being the defining moment of this election. joining me today to discuss all of this and more, msnbc political analyst and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine, john heilemann. msnbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com, richard wolffe. msnbc political analyst, jonathan alter of bloomberg view, and msnbc political analyst and former dnc, karen finney, hopefully joining us shortly. john, i go to you first. in terms of sandy being an inflection point, game changer, if you will, a term we do not toss around lightly, are we -- is it -- is it a game changer? can you prognosticate that far? do you think the president is stronger coming out of the sandy response as a candidate? >> look, there's no question that if you think about this storm and what it's done to the media environment over the course of the week, it's blackout co
and the questions being posed to mitt romney about fema funding. >> belva: president obama get a bump and rating out of his handling -- >> in the last week, we've seen a sea change in the presidential race, obama not only got a bump in the polls, no doubt about it, but the fact he got the support of michael bloomberg and chris christie -- >> chris christie hasn't endorsed him. >> the fact is, he said he endorsed his role -- >> his leadership. >> his leadership, and i think that was very critical. it did raise the whole issue of, what is the role of government? and i think a lot of people stood back and watched some of the destruction there, i think the affects of sandy are going to be talked about for a long time on this presidential race, coming where they did when romney has had some momentum going into it. we'll see if he does coming out of it. >> >> belva: i have to return to odette here. we talked about polls. where are issues that these groups of any of the grouches -- . >> looking beyond the numbers, they were able to glean direct insight from journalists in a weekly election series that we d
